SEPTEMBER 12 - 11:40


SEPTEMBER 12 - 11:40

9/12/17 11:40, a time that will live in infamy in the Cranky home.  There was a first and probably a last event on this date at this time.  It will forever be etched in my memory.

Mrs. C and I were driving to our dentist office.  She for a scheduled cleaning, me for an emergency broken filling repair.  I have been seeing this same dentist for 41 years.  Mrs. C has only been once.  One trip to anywhere is always enough for Mrs. C to know the way.  Her internal GPS system is legendary to those who know her.

It is a twenty-minute drive.  We took the back roads and as we reached the corner of Hardenberg Lane and Oakmont Road it happened. 

At 11:40 AM, Mrs. C asked me, “Do I go left, or right?”

Never in the nine years I have known Mrs. C have I ever heard that question.  I could only sputter out,

“Excuse me?”

“Left or right, do I turn left or right here?”

“Wait a minute, I want to savor this.”

“Savor what?”

“You have never, ever, asked me for directions to anywhere, I just want to savor the moment…OK, turn right.”

“You are such a jerk!”

  4. It sounds like going to the dentist makes her as nervous as the rest of us.

  5. It's like the first time you hear one of us say, "You were right and I was wrong." Kinda special.

  7. I can't believe that she called you a jerk haha

    We will have to go with being nervous about the dentist, because this is a new one for Mrs. C.

  8. She set you up! She was nervous about the dentist, and needed a "JERK!" to release some energy.

  13. That's what you get for "savoring" the moment. Actually, having followed your blog for years now, I don't think of you as a jerk. Of course I'm not married to you.
